But soon the king got bored and forgot his first wife having wedded another woman Ino. This one appeared to be jealous and envy of her husbands past and decided to kill Nephele’s kids. She schemed a plot with local women which resulted in a drought. The king instead of asking his subjects sent delegation to Delphi Oracle, kind of ancient supreme court which decisions were taken as orders. Ino was fast enough to bribe the messengers who claimed the king false answer. They told him that the earth will harvest again only if he sacrifices his kids from first marriage. Naive Athamas had no other choice than to agree. But Nephele sent a rescuer: the Ram with golden fleece, a gift from Mercury. The ram took the twins on his back and swiftly flew over the waters of the sea. But Helle suddenly felt dizzy and fell down from the ram’s back. It happened somewhere over Dardanells, and the place she fell into was called Hellespont, “the sea of Helle”. Prixus reached Colchis alone and sacrificed Ram to Jupiter who sent the Ram into the sky for his savior mission.It was Ram’s golden fleece that served a mean and reason for one of the most dramatic stories in ancient myth Jason’s adventure of kidnapping, seducing and Medea’s fatal passion and revenge.Tarot Arcana. In Tarot Aries is correspondent to Major Arcana The Emperor. The figure itself as well as other symbols deepen Aries understanding and provide with tips to enhance Aries’s energy. We can see the ram headed armrests of the Emperor’s throne as well as two profiles at the top of it. The figure of the Emperor adds solid and authority to Aries sign, is not it?
Emperor is rather direct and stubborn but only to protect well what is in his responsibility. His harshness has improvement if he maintains the order and stability of his environment. He wants to rule and enjoys his power but it works only when there is something higher than bread and butter to fight for. The emperor is a king but resembles a medieval warrior more than a modern diplomat. As Aries you know the pain from wounds and know how to protect yourself.
You hide the furious energy of battling under the cloak but always ready to jump from the thrown and fight.When Aries’s aggressiveness and impulsiveness overwhelm you look at the stout and armored king on the throne and stay fixed, make yourself sited and force to make an exact plan of your actions and words. Number 4 calls to ordering and strict organization as they are the means to channel that powerful stream of Aries enthusiasm. Yes, you are the first and you can be a prominent leader but you will also face everything you would bring to life and it is better to imagine more exactly the nature of your initiatives and innovations.
Be persistent as a ram, wise as emperor, strong as a king-warrior, creative as blessing as Amon-Ra and savior-rescuer as Ram with Golden Fleece.
I hope my short suggestion will help you to invent your own way of opening the potential energy of your signs.
